About The Book

A vision of the forty days Jesus walked the earth after the resurrection.

Seventy years after the resurrection of Jesus Christ, in a poor, one room home built from stone, mud, and straw located just outside of Jerusalem, a frail old man tells his granddaughter and her husband of an amazing and miraculous secret.  A secret that, because of fear, he kept to himself for decades. 
When he was an orphaned nine-year old street urchin on a street in Jerusalem, he had an encounter with a “bloody and beaten” man who was being forced to drag a heavy timber cross for His own crucifixion.  The old man tells of what he witnessed first-hand of the lost forty days Jesus walked the earth.
